      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $11.74 (117.4 bb) VP 15 PFR 15 48hands
      SB: $20.77 (207.7 bb)
      [b]Hero (BB): $9.45 (94.5 bb)
      UTG+1: $13.35 (133.5 bb) Fish VP 63 PFR 20 82hands
      UTG+2: $10 (100 bb)
      MP1: $14.96 (149.6 bb)
      MP2: $12.28 (122.8 bb) VP 9 PFR 4 68hands
      MP3: $15.25 (152.5 bb)

      UTG+1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, 2 folds,BTN raises to $0.50, SB folds, Hero calls $0.40, UTG+1 calls $0.40, MP2 calls $0.40

      (I call here because I dont want to get into a huge pot OP and I`m setmining)

      Flop: ($2.05) 5 :club: K :heart: 6 :club:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, MP2 checks, BTN checks

      (I think the check on this flop is good its possible that someone has this K)

      Turn: ($2.05) 8 :spade:
      Hero bets $0.90, UTG+1 folds, MP2 calls $0.90, BTN folds

      (I decide to donk it here to see where I stand and I dont think anyone has this K after all the checks on flop, Turns out good everyone folds but MP2 who I am thinkin he has some sort of draw like flush or straight)

      River: ($3.85) 8 :heart:
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $2.80 , Hero calls $2.80

      Is this check good because it keeps the pot reasonable and I am giving him a chance to make a mistake?

      I wasnt sure about this call but it seemed like a fishy bet from MP2 so I decided to go for it.

      MP2 shows A :club: 4 :club:

      Hero shows 9 :spade: 9 :heart:

      This is my first post for a hand evaluation. I deleted some lines so thats probably why the icons dont show. Please let me know if there is anything wrong with this so I can do better next time.

      Thank you

      Hi Lucky,

      Welcome to the evaluation boards.

      First off I'd recommend if you could separate the hand text and the comment text, perhaps through the use of different colors. It would make it easier for us to read and follow the action.

      As played what do you think MP2s range can be on that turn (once he calls us)?

      I'd say a few Kx (he limped behind first so not many), small PPs like 77 maybe some slowplayed sets, and draws like 87s, suited aces, etc.

      Why do you say that his bet on the river was "fishy". Was the size he used throwing you off?

      As a side note if you want a judge to take another look at your hand after you post a reply simply hit the button that says "inform judge to take another look" (or something similar).

      Ok I will use a different method for the comment text.

      I thought since villain is playing a tight range that he wouldnt have Kx and have something more like a flush or straight draw.

      It was pretty much the size of his bet. I didnt really have info on villain but it seemed weak to me.
